If you look at the following workflow you know why I am starting to love NFS more and more… Adding an NFS datastore was easy with 5.0 (and prior) but with 5.1 it is even easier. Just a couple of steps to add an NFS datastore to your cluster:
- Open the Web Client
- Go to your host under “vCenter” —> “Hosts and Clusters”.

- Select “NFS” and click “Next”. Fill out the NFS “Server” and “Folder” details and click “Next”.
